Mother-Infant Interaction in Premature and Full-Term Infants.
Crawford, J. W.
Child Development, v53 n4 p957-62 Aug 1982
Premature infants vocalized less, played less, and were more fretful than full-term infants of the same chronological age, although they looked at objects and looked around their environment more. Mothers of premature infants demonstrated more caretaking and affectionate behavior toward their infants. Between-group differences decreased as age increased. (Author/RH)
